My Name is J.T. I live just south of Annapolis Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay and have been smoking for about 4 years on a modified offset and master built electric smoker. I just now joined the forum but have been lurking as a guest for awhile now as my cooks have improved greatly since finding SMOKING-MEAT.COM. I want to say thanks for all of the great information and I am looking forward to much more. I am currently in the market for a new smoker and I pretty much have it down to what I want (Lang Hybrid Deluxe Patio) and what makes the most sense for my situation (Yoder YS640). I think the next things I look forward to learning are jerky, sausage and bacon and will be searching for tips.
